Fans think Hailee Steinfeld's new song 'Wrong Direction' is about Niall Horan

It has been rumoured that they dated for over a year.

Hailee Steinfeld released a new song this week and fans believe it's about Niall Horan. Called the 'Wrong Direction' (which people think is a big hint that it's about the Mullingar man), the ballad features lines about cheating and having a big ego.

“I just hate all the hurt that you put me through.

"And that I blame myself for letting you.

"Lookin’ back, I probably should have known, but I just wanted to believe that you were out sleepin’ alone.

"Hold me with your worst intentions, paint it as a happy ending, every time you burn me down, don’t know how.

"For a moment it felt like heaven, and it’s so gut-wrenchin’, fallin’ in the wrong direction.”

The pair apparently split up in December 2018 but neither of them ever confirmed they were an item. They were, however, pictured together on numerous occasions.

Niall has also recently worked on a new album and says that a break-up made it easier for him to begin writing.

"I had just gone through a break-up, which helps when it comes to writing songs, I guess. It helps vent the emotions.

“Going through heartbreak helped write the ballads, even some of the happy songs, the sad songs that are dressed up as happy songs sometimes.”
